Lucknow Super Giants will take on the Royal Challengers Bangalore in their next game at the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy in Navi Mumbai.

On the other hand, the addition of Dinesh Karthik has proved to be a blessing for the RCB and he has been producing innings of the highest caliber.

They are currently in third place in the points table with eight points from six games as well.

The last game at the ground saw a score of 151 getting chased down comfortably. However, any score above 170 is going to be difficult to chase down going by the results so far. The captain that wins the toss is likely to bowl first as it has been difficult to assess the winning score on the wickets so far.

PROBABLE TOP PERFORMERS
PROBABLE BEST BATTER OF THE MATCH: GLENN MAXWELL
Glenn Maxwell has been in good form since returning to the RCB playing XI and he scored an important half-century in the previous game to keep the side going at a good scoring rate. The right-hander hit 55 off just 34 balls with seven fours and two sixes and was quite aggressive from the start of his innings despite wickets falling around him. He can change the game on its head very quickly in a matter of time.
PROBABLE BEST BOWLER OF THE MATCH: WANINDU HASARANGA
Wanindu Hasaranga has been one of the standout spinners in this IPL edition despite the wickets not assisting the spinner and he could change games with his wicket-taking abilities. The leggie has taken 11 wickets in six games so far and is at the fifth position in the race for the Purple Cap this year. He has played an important role in the RCB bowling set-up this year and the Sri Lankan will look to add more wickets to his tally.
Today’s match prediction: RCB to win the match.
